“Great Swim Thrus and Wall dive w eagle ray”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Visited both Palanchar Caves & Gardens each twice during our stay. Love the wall dive & the swim thrus. Also saw a good number of turtles, a toad fish, a large eagle ray, school of barracuda, and several drum fish (which are a favorite), plus others. We dove with Blue Angel (they are great) - Jorge, Andreas, Juan, & Norman. Great fun.

“Don't miss it.”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Gorgeous Reef and Caverns. A not to be missed dive. You can dive this Reef several times over and it won't be the same dive twice.

“Didn't see much”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Came here on a snorkelling tour and didn't see much, even the experienced swimmers who dived down didn't see much. It was all reef and virtually no fish.

This is another great reef and wall system in Cozumel. Lots to see at all depths. Good color and life.
